08:44 AM ET 08.18 | Take it for what it's worth, but there's buzz out there that Greek team Panathinaikos is interested in Detroit Pistons free agent Ben Wallace. Sportando.net, which covers European basketball, drew that conclusion from a story out of Greece that we couldn't read. It was all Greek to us. Last month, Wallace said he was 50-50 on returning to the Pistons or retiring. Wallace, who turns 38 next month, averaged 1.4 points and 4.3 rebounds in 62 games last season. But it's also unclear whether the Pistons want their longtime center back.

- okc making sure they have something to counter-act dwight for the next few years

Iblocka's great around the hoop but Dwight is hard to block when dunking.

OKC should add a throat protector to counter the Lakers. We still have MWP!

what?? counteract?? i mean i love serge, but dwight eats like 5 ibakas for breakfast every day. dwight snacks on him between meals. i bet he's got ibaka-bars in his man bag

ibaka guarding dwight is like durant guarding lebron. there's 3 guys in the league who can do anything about d12, and that's 1) perkins and 2) tyson 3) bynum

notice 1) - OKC already has the big mean. let's hope they can keep their other pieces after this Air Serge contract
